After the super fun we had with the Tangling over Distressed Tile ebook, it was about time I create a video: this video is a little over an hour and shows the ENTIRE PROCESS from beginning to end.

Sooooo many tips and tricks!

Some of these belong to sets and will not be found individually so feel free to adapt and change the colors or brands!
